Real Estate Probate Explained: Al Nicoletti, Esq.
Show Notes

On this episode, we pull back the curtain on the murky world of probate.  Florida real estate Attorney Al Nicoletti is with us to explain in layman's terms what probate is, how it works and why it's a good idea to be up to speed on it before you die. 

In simple terms, real estate probate is the legal process of moving the title from the deceased to the heirs, which enables them to sell the property or make other arrangements. 

Al says that contrary to popular perception, probate needn't be a long-drawn process. He also talks about Lady Bird deeds, spousal inheritance, durable power of attorney and other aspects of probate in Florida.  And we learn a little more about Al when he plays the Lightning Round!
